From Local to Cross-Border Initiatives to support
– Smart Cities Collaboration

This session will be addressing Living Labs, Future Internet based services and Smart Cities from ongoing cross-border city initiatives in the fields of Open Innovation, Public Private Partnerships and Future ICT enabled services. Participants will discuss how developments and possibilities offered by today’s and future Internet technologies, platforms and applications can sustain open and participatory innovation ecosystems, and drive towards more innovative and effective cities, thus addressing the question how cities can act as networked innovation ecosystems accelerating development and take-up of new technology enabled services. In addition, the Connected Smart City Network will be launched supported by DG Information Society and Media and the Eurocities network. This network will bring together different European cities to lay the ground of networked Smart cities for new economy, jobs and skills, but also new ways of working and a new quality of life that will serve the locality and its people and businesses well for decades to come.

Inspiring speakers will highlight major themes, and presentations will be made from the European funded initiatives of ”Open Innovation for future Internet-enabled Services in Smart Cities.”
